TESTIMONIALS

Great place in a beautiful location with lovely views of the countryside. Great

Positive;
Rooms: excellent
Dining Room: excellent
Conference Room: excellent
Tea room: excellent
Food: Breakfast was very convenient and tasty. Packing one’s own lunch was a brilliant idea, so everyone could choose what they wanted to eat. Dinner however was good. Everyone enjoyed the quality and quantity of the food.
Reception: excellent

Kitchen staff: excellent and helpful

Recommendation:

Food: With the dessert, considering most of my students were unadventurous Australian students, it might be wiser to serve more Australian-style desserts and have a few Asian-style ones so as not to waste food and effort.

My principal was so impressed, I believe he booked a staff conference there for next year in January.
